or two so this is the you not show the concept and it's easy to change these living conditions to decentralize. the reception system as we have before but this is the new policies it started in autumn two thousand and fifteen so now germany is in line with the european trent creating camps. and increase detention capacities ok that is an accusation that we heard in the report as well that the centers are meant to be dehumanizing we should mention that we did in a reporter did ask the state of bavaria for a comment on the center and they said as we saw in the report that there commentated in court in accordance with current guidelines on the whole there is plenty of space in the center so what are the guidelines. so that the official guidelines is e.u. law and we have laws and we have the constitution salute should be beneath
9:31 am
dignified living conditions so it makes sense to to keep people for a long period and as you mentioned. in the report there are also kids inside so kids have the right. it's compulsory to go to school this is not the way little women have the right to find protection within the reception center at the camp this is not the way this is not a trend it so these kind of if you read different directives reception directives it's crystal clear it has to be based on human dignity and then we need a fair and of somber speech also this is not. granted because you have a fair sign procedure unidos was something legen independent legal counseling. sometimes quiet in the middle of nowhere is quite difficult for warranty is to get
9:32 am
access to all this basic requirements are not available in these camps and therefore we criticize them and many of their excess church activist groups criticize this and we want to end this policy and go back to. dignified reception system in germany all right carl cut from the n.-g. o. pro as there are joining us on our program thank you so much thank you. we're turning now back to our top story french president emmanuel mccall is vowing to rebuild the twelfth century church after a blaze ravaged notre dom on monday firefighters say the fire is now under control and is partially extinguished let's take a look at what's been left ending this morning here authorities say the cathedral structure was largely saved but the fire gutted its roof and cause its fire to collapse one firefighter was injured during the blaze that many valuable artworks
9:33 am
inside were lost or damaged people around the world are lamenting the devastation of a landmark that has a survived the tunnel to well over us. all right let's bring in our correspondents . standing by for us in paris and with us here in studio is news editor and a french journalist. thank you both again for being with us a barbara bring us up to date again on the latest information on assets to put out all the flames and also the extent of the damage to the cathedral. that is was firefighters now really are trying to send me specialists we can see them from time sort of chinese figures crawling around in the outer reaches of this huge edifice behind us they are trying to figure out how bad the structural damage is because this is build from is sort of limestone is send stone and the huge heat that was generated by this hour's long blaze of the roof that completely burned down last
9:34 am
night will have sort of damage the structure now the question is how safe are the walls how safe are the supporting arches that we can see in the background that sort of stabilize the huge walls of the cutesy drew and hold them together so this is really avoided also at some points there is still water being strewn up against the walls to cool them down slowly because the danger was a fire like this is that it might be extinguished and then there is some nests somewhere and it can slowly start smoldering again and sort of go off again so this is what firefighters are now trying to prevent it is enormous damage inside we could see some images from inside and there is a huge gaping hole in the roof where the spire fell down so if it starts raining rain is going to sort of fall into the inside of the can seadrill to add to the
9:35 am
damage so yes this is the period in the phase where everybody tries to figure out all the experts water has happened there how bad is it really are it in many ways we've been talking a lot about the structure itself but it noted i'm also housed plenty of art artifacts relics tell us more about what was inside or what is inside. where to take and it was a tete a tete a chests really we had relics here you mentioned organs very very and instruments there were twixt. there were the bells wait. several several times. yesterday it was feed. into two towers might collapse and completely destroyed the building fortunately the two towers remained and. remained in place so. really. probably very damaged by the amount. that has been trained. to being turned.
9:36 am
into cool dawn to cool down to cool off the walls fortunately everything was. held to treasure chambre house being saved by five artists yesterday evening so it's sibylline all right that is indeed a silver lining of barbara we've been talking about what a blow this is to france's cultural heritage tell us more about how people there have been reacting to that. throughout the night people came out so long after midnight to to watch this terrible spectacle and there was a real mood and the streets around they could see the drill here and people just standing there quietly and let's hear what to have what they had to say about their sense of loss. from this year the boss and his awkward is just i felt really angry to know that such
9:37 am
a large beautiful piece of art went up in smoke like that. to me so i was really shocked so when i heard the news i ran straight here. i told you i waited i saw flames i was powerless and it made me sick to the stomach and go off you know the streets are very silent tonight it's remarkable i think silence so many people came out here and they all sat. somebody it's a symbol for all of france not only for catholics and that's why everyone is so moved when they see the pictures. do what. it's a monument above and beyond it's religious meaning it's something that represents the entire evolution of french civilization. she says so it's very dramatic to see something like this happening you see how many concussions comes.
9:38 am
we're all shaken we're all sad even a friend from italy called me and told me that it's big news there i guess it is all over the world if the. you know barbara we heard that last last comment there are a friend from italy calling in to tell us more about some of the reactions that we've been seeing pouring in from around the world to there in paris. i mean all the heads of state and government of the european countries are going to america the german chancellor but all of those brussels the heads of the european union have been sort of commiserating with france in sending messages of support and feeling for the french people and was of course president a man who is now in a really difficult position because this is going to weigh on his presidency i mean this is something that is going to make his life even more difficult and he will
9:39 am
have to turn this into something that we can say positive but he has to turn this into something forward looking that's what he tried to do saying we will rebuild but the sense of loss really is pervasive it goes around the world because this was the most visited cultural monument in europe thirteen million visitors every year everybody from around the world who went to paris would go to see and would go inside this because she drew a sort of look at the wonders wonders of this special place and it's going to take many many years can be reopened to the public yet really has been immortalized in art that also in so many people's pictures as you said barbara as they've gone there as tourists we saw that a lot of people sharing their pictures on twitter yesterday of their images in front of notre dame tell us more about your friend about why this monument to
9:40 am
so important to the french well you know it's a landmark in the center of paris to begin with just the trash you have the point zero ten then. the epicenter of all the highways in friends this from paris are calculated from that point zero so that's that's the central point of the french capital french people so it's part of our heritage and it's the high coast. to various other arts where speech talk about not what i'm thinking obviously or bought. from victoria go which we study at school and which we grow our points with those legends surrounding the kids and also all the arts was that poetry which has been returned by the paintings which have been. drawn all it's really something that belongs to our culture and that is why it's unthinkable to think about paris without thinking about. cathedral in this part of the fabric of
9:41 am
france many people are saying as we said it's survive more than eight hundred years of french history let's take a look back now at the history of the medieval monument. part of what we are an essential part of paris is in peril that was the reaction of many in france is the fire took hold they looked on incredulous as the flames engulfed notre dame. for the french people not to dom is more than just a cathedral it's the heart of paris a landmark alongside the eiffel tower a magnet for millions of visitors a year notre dame stands on the hills in a city in the middle of the river seign it's france's most famous catholic monument dating right back to the middle ages. during the french revolution many of the cathedrals treasures were plundered in eighteen zero four it was the venue for napoleon's coronation as the emperor of france. eight hundred thirty one saw the
9:42 am
publication of the famous novel the hunchback of notre dame by victor hugo it was a huge success and brought the cathedral new attention. now in twenty nineteen the unthinkable has happened the flames consuming not to dam cathedral taking with them centuries of history. and matter what you remind us why this building is in itself an artifact of what makes the architecture so special well to begin with as if took two hundred years to build it it was jane years to be able to build such a structure we've mentioned the rose windows which we have unfortunately lost now a forever which were an art piece also an art piece by themselves there's a whole what and wooden structure that we so collapsing yesterday that would dated back to the thirteenth century is invaluable would that we will never be able to rebuild the it exactly that way and it won't have the same significance than it had
9:43 am
it had survived said century history and that is lost doesn't matter civil leininger was thing. no bounds reading about the spire despite her was the first the first item to be renovated and thankfully a few weeks ago all of the only sixteen states used had been removed to be rest to eighteen so those states years that were before perched on this fire have survived since there weren't on site at the time to so many reasons that make notre dame so special to france really to the world but you know we heard barbara comment a little bit earlier that this could really weigh on in my own mark on his presidency what do you see as any possible political consequences for him or for the mayor of paris for example any duggal well there will be a lot of questions to be answered first by an indigo because indeed the rest of the firefighters was was very. was was delayed and i think it took forty five minutes
9:44 am
to come on site and i need i go we'll have to answer for dot it's not it's not thinkable that in a capital city city where there were terrorist attacks and where there were evacuation trainings and emergency trainings over and over it's not thinkable that it took so long a full five writers to arrive on site now for a manual macro it's like i was saying he's not dressed he's not the sole responsible of this of this neglectful policy towards heritage french heritage however he's the sitting president and he's he's going to have to answer for him not on need a better tree restoration he decided but those so for all the neglect has been caused by decades of main dates with presidents who didn't really care about protecting the french cultural heritage that is of course
9:45 am
a lot to carry on the shoulders of barbara what is the feeling that you're getting there in paris about the possible consequences going forward and what are we expecting to see a day here today. it's a bit too early to speculate about the political consequences of course is the one who was. the mayor of paris will have to answer some very strong questions about what happened here and how it was possible that things got moving so slow now it seems in the meantime the firefighters have sort of been able to contain it now they're trying to secure the site and it is going to take days to really assess the the detail of the damage and the full sort of. size of the damage because there might be lots of structural problems the building the walls might have to be stabilized from within we don't know yet but it's just a huge task and it is
9:46 am
a very difficult thing because as specialists will have to be brought in from throughout france and maybe even from other european countries from everywhere because you're going to need hundreds of people working on the huge site like this that has been so devastated and there is in this morning you see them go past on their way to work and everybody stops here to look at this site for a moment and the faces are still somber and the mood is still quite depressed in a sense there really seems to be a prove a sort of sense of loss after what happened last night here all right barbara vessel reporting for us from the scene there in paris and with us here in our studio thank you both. now on to some other news that prosecutors here in germany have charged former volkswagen c.e.o. martin venter caught in with fraud the sprawling diesel scandal over rigged emissions software has reached the very top of the carmaker quite as one of five
9:47 am
executives suspected of approving software that was programmed to deceive inspectors about emission folks back and says the software just was the ploy to eleven million vehicles into quantised a night early knowledge of the cheating. prosecutors are convinced the former folks fog and c.e.o. knew about the exhaust emissions cheating and hid it from the public to the model former chairman of the board dr venter cologne is in fact accused of a particularly serious case of fraud a violation of the law against unfair competition and breach of trust for war. if the charges of proven winterkorn could easily land in jail and he's the very man credited with turning fox wagner into the world's top car maker but the news the company had been employing devices to give low pollution readings during exhaust testing instantly hammered the company's share price and its reputation. sure to give me would like to make
9:48 am
a formal apology to our customers the authorities and to the general public for this misconduct please believe me we will do everything necessary to reverse the damage and we will do everything necessary to win back your trust step by step group for giving. intercon had to step down despite claiming he knew nothing about the scandal but prosecutors say he already knew about it in many twenty fourteen and did nothing to stop it also failing to report it to the authorities and customers. when to cons of sars he was feared by staff who were under pressure to make the carmaker the global leader managers and technicians were afraid to challenge him and all the while folks who are going continue to claim that it's diesel technology was especially clean and environmentally friendly. yet fs from good of you business is on the story for us hi go ahead first of all let's start out with not invent a call on what happens to him next well worst case scenario for him is ten years in
9:49 am
prison that's the maximum sentence for serious fraud here in germany but secondly he'll also have to pay back his bonus his of course substantial bonuses top managers have received up to eleven million euros per year. in bonuses. but first of all the court has to decide whether it actually will put him on trial and that will take some time prosecutors have put together the indictment it's seven nearly seven hundred pages long and they're supporting documentation of a staggering seventy five thousand pages of evidence so it will take some time for the court actually to decide. what to do and then into kong even if he gets off there's another indictment in the west against him personally so it will get very uncomfortable so this does all gates scandals now which the very top of it doesn't mean that it's over. i don't think so prosecutors say this is only a first step there's another three dozen v.w.
